Family Fun Night
River of Life Church is hosting an opportunity for adults and children in the church family to put aside daily cares for some plain old fun at Chuck E. Cheese in Jacksonville on Monday, March 2, 3-9 p.m. Part of the proceeds from the event will fund children’s programs at River of Life. Anyone who plans to attend is invited to pick up coupons at the church information booth to use Monday evening.
Chuck E. Cheese is located at 2005 N. Marine Blvd. in Jacksonville.
New Onslow County Museum exhibit
The Onslow County Museum’s latest exhibit is called “Order in the Court.” This display tells the story of the Onslow County jails and courthouses, the development of law enforcement and the business of the courts beginning with colonial times to the present. Museum guests will be able to immerse themselves in the lives of people attending court in Onslow County centuries ago.
Chance Hellmann, collections manager at the Onslow County Museum, told WNCT9 News, “I think getting to see how much of what we have today when you go to court is very similar to what you would have done in the colonial period.”
Additionally, visitors get a chance to play the part of an investigator and solve a fake crime scene.
This exhibit will run until May 31. The museum’s address is 301 South Wilmington St., Richland.
Mon.-Wed., 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Saturday, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Admission (cash or check only):
Adults – $2.14
Children (Ages 3-18) – $1.07
Active duty members of the military with proper identification, including up to five family members, are admitted free.
There is also a family fun pass available for $15. For more information, click this link.
